3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Indiana tries to create a safe and healthy environment for their students, but without the help of the students their efforts won't work. They emergency phones throughout campus and have services that provide safe transportation for people at night.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is a TON of greek life at IU. Those in the greek system can be put into groups based on what they do. Some are known for their substance use ( alcohol/drugs) ,others for their parties, others for having the good looking people, and others still for being great people in the community. It all depends on the house you are in. There are also quite a few unhoused fraternities and sororities.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Although our athletic teams are not the best the games are always very fun to go to. Our students do an incredible job of supporting our teams. The school spirit is awesome. It is hard to call yourself a Hoosier if you do not know the school song. The games are free or very affordable, and the school always does a great job of making them fun!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Going to Indiana University I was scared of the size of the school. I did not know if I would find a good friend group, or if I would feel like just another face in the crowd. When I arrived in the fall I fell in love with it. My smallest class was thirteen people my largest close to 200, and they had one thing in common, I was more than just a number. The professors cared and tried to learn everyone's name. The opportunities at Indiana University are endless. There is a club for nearly everything, and if there is a club that doesn't exist it is fairly simple to create one. Although IU has been known as a party school there is so much more to it than that. There is always something to do on or off of campus that doesn't involve alcohol. The people at IU are so accepting of everyone. They do not care if you drink or don't drink, are religious or not,if you are shy or outgoing, or if you have a 4.0 or a 2.4. The athletics are also so much fun. Not all of our teams are the best, but the games are always so much fun. In the moment of cheering on the Hoosier's teams everyone is in it together. It is as if nothing else matters we can all be brought together by one phrase: "Indiana oh Indiana Indiana we are all for you."

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The majority of the courses taught are interesting and challenge students to get good grades. There are also a select few that are just easy A's and that no student takes seriously. These classes end up wasting the student's time and no one benefits from it.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: IU is known nationally for having a great educational program. Each year thousands of students graduate from IU with jobs all ready lined up. While in school, students are able to find internships that help set them up for jobs after college. The career center does a wonderful job in helping students find job opportunities and internships that relate to their field so they can get a taste of what they can do after they graduate.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They do their best to help protect our safety and well-being.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is fun for the first couple of weeks but it gets old real quick.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: They are hard to get into, but it is all worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletic facilities could use an upgrade.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I had to choose what school to go to all over again, I would choose IU without a doubt. I have gained many new friends and have formed many connections that will help me out later in life. I have also learned new skills such as managing my time more efficiently, becoming a leader/role model, and how to work hard but yet enjoy the college experience.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Easy to tell people smoking marijuana, but it's not a bother to me.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus is relatively safe at night, just be smart and walk well lit paths. Take someone with you if you don't feel safe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Of all the classes I've taken I've only ever had one bad professor. All my professors have an interest in their students success no matter how large the class is.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are tons of networking events, career fairs, and other events/activities to help students find jobs.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: You can generally find a party anywhere you go on campus on any night of the week.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: An IU party isn't a party unless an ambulance is called.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone seems like they are tolerant of everyone- then go on yikyak or some other social media and you'll find out this isn't true at all.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is expensive but definitely worth it, at least for freshmen year because you are able to meet a lot of people very quickly and build a tiny community.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

IU is a well-rounded school, excelling in everything from academics to athletics. The fact that it offers something for almost everyone is the testimony given by the student body; over 40,000 kids from all over the world found IU and have made it their home for four years or more. IU’s campus is an original place in an isolated little town, and while it may be in the middle of nowhere, it doesn’t take long for most students to find something that makes it feel a little more like home.

Most of the complaints about IU involve its large size, and if you’re looking for the kind of school where everybody knows everyone else’s names, this isn’t the right place for you. However, the faculty, staff, and general population of Indiana University all work together to make an otherwise intimidating atmosphere feel a bit more accepting. There are so many opportunities here that your experience at IU is undoubtedly what you make of it. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to gain admission, you don’t have to be a long-time binge-drinker to have a great social life, and you barely even have to leave your dorm room to make friends. Ultimately, these are just a few of the many positives that make the college experience in Bloomington, Indiana the most memorable and most educational years of your life.
